Great resource for standardized writing tests! Easy to use! Gives students a choice in their writing every day!
This easy to use bundle includes 120 writing prompts appropriate and engaging for middle school students divided into 12 weeks! This is a great test-prep resource to use before standardized writing tests to get students prepared to do a one-sit write for the major genres. Being a 12 week resource, this bundle is also great for a full trimester or weekly writing or a maternity leave.
Each day has students writing to a specific genre, and they choose between two prompts. Each week every student will write a creative, a narrative, a persuasive, an expository, and a journal writing. I have found breaking them up in this way helps students prepare for the writing portion of standardized tests. I also love giving middle school writers a choice- it makes them much more motivated to write!
This bundle also includes:
*Helpful Hints Page*
This page gives students a reference to the purpose of each genre. It also gives reminders and helpful pointers for students to focus on for each genre.
This provides an easy way to add differentiation into your classroom. Students are able to chose three different revision strategies to improve their writing. All six traits of writing are represented on the tic-tac-toe board. This is a great resource to challenge your more advanced writers!
